Interior design trends that defined the 2010s

The recession of 2007–2009 led people to question long-held assumptions about design, resulting in dramatic changes in how shoppers choose what they buy, where we all get inspired, and what designers create. Modern design became more conscious, more engaged, more exciting, more democratic, more individualistic. It was applied in so many new ways to so many new challenges.

Are we better off for it all? It’s debatable.

Trend #3. Enclosed Theater Rooms vs. Open TV Spaces

Top Trends in Basement Design - Sebring Services

When it comes to designing a basement media room, homeowners have two options; an enclosed theater room or an open TV space. A theater room is generally for the real enthusiast.  They want all the adornments that would enhance the experience: enclosed walls, plush reclining seats, a projection screen, surround sound, LED floor lighting and maybe even a popcorn machine.  An open TV space is more casual and much more cost effective to set up.

The traditional theater room has been the dream for most homeowners. But considering the cost and stress of setting one up and the increasing appeal of open concept design, 2019 will see more homeowners opting for open TV spaces.

8 Interior Design Trends That Are So Over in 2019

Your home’s got style—and boy, did you work to achieve it. You followed design blogs, pored over Pinterest boards, and chose accent pieces and colors to add just the right note. That is, you did five years ago. Or 10.

But guess what? Style isn’t static, and your home decor shouldn’t be, either. Even the most beloved design elements can start to feel unbearably stale after a while.

“Some design trends come and go with dizzying speed,” says New York City designer Ellen O’Neill. “Others seem to just hang around long past their sell-by date.”

We won’t tell you to ditch the stuff that speaks to your soul, changing trends be damned. But if you’re itching for a design upgrade and aren’t sure where to start, ask yourself if your home is sporting any of these looks that have worn out their welcome.
